CLEAN ENERGY, CLIMATE & ENVIRONMENT
For many years, Hailstone has been a pioneer in developing the most effective, impactful communications strategies and tactics to promote clean energy, combat climate change and protect the environment. We are all-in to greatly accelerate the transition to a 100% clean energy economy.
From mobilizing thousands of participants in Climate Marches, to placing op-eds in national outlets, to spearheading thought leadership on messaging, we continue to be at the forefront of the field. We strongly believe in avoiding the pitfalls of the failed climate communications of the past. Instead, we focus on appealing to the direct interests and values of working people—in both rural and urban communities—to create the raw political power and will for fundamental policy change. Our core messaging focuses on:
Creating millions of good jobs.
Producing more affordable power.
Promoting national security.
Protecting healthy families with clean air and water.
Expanding the freedom of individuals and communities to produce their own energy.
Just as important as messaging is utilizing credible messengers, especially clean energy workers themselves, and emphasizing concrete solutions over dystopian hopelessness. We are confident, optimistic and fired up to continue our work as a leading partner in achieving a clean energy future.
Hailstone was proud to be a key partner in creating this report with the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC)

Hailstone is a preeminent thought leader for effective clean energy and climate messaging. Our highly successful approach appeals to the basic moral values of the majority of working Americans by focusing on building a clean energy economy that will expand the middle class. We not only support our clients by creating powerful PR strategies that win campaigns, but we also have a mission to widely disseminate communications best practices. As part of that mission, we recently published the above opinion pieces in top news outlets.
Hailstone’s team has a proven track record of getting progressive candidates elected to local, state and national office. Through extensive advertising, press outreach, message framing, voter mobilization, social media and more, we help even longshot, underdog candidates achieve landslide victories. Most importantly, we make sure that our communications are always speaking and relating directly to key voters.
BRANDS FOR SOCIAL GOOD
We have the expertise to elevate, expand and position brands that are focused on promoting the social good. From social media and advertising to generating broad press coverage and outside-the-box marketing events, our highly creative and passionate team can bring your brand to the next level and help you make a positive contribution to communities.
At Hailstone, we strongly believe that healthcare is a fundamental right for all. We have over 25 years of experience fighting for and winning major improvements in healthcare access, quality and funding for hospitals, nursing homes, clinics and home care programs. In all of our healthcare advocacy communications, we foreground the voices and personal stories of frontline nurses, healthcare workers and patients.
In one example, we garnered a massive tidal wave of coverage for a press event calling for greater healthcare funding in Wisconsin.
At Hailstone, we have generations of teachers in our families, so education is a very personal cause for us. We're deeply passionate about advocating for greater funding at all levels, good jobs for educators, access to the highest quality education, and mental healthcare for kids. We believe that all communications around education issues must focus on speaking directly to the concerns of parents, children and communities.
Hailstone is proud and honored to be an ally in the fight for civil rights. We first make sure to begin any campaign by listening deeply to our clients and their coalitions. Then we provide powerful public relations and communications support to achieve concrete goals. In just two recent examples, we led the communications for:
Hailstone is the country’s preeminent PR and communications agency for labor unions, good jobs and workers’ rights. We’ve led communications for hundreds of successful campaigns that have improved thousands of working Americans’ lives, including these recent tremendous victories:
A historic $16 minimum wage for 13,000 Nevada home care workers.
A “Hero Bonus” for 85,000 Kaiser Permanente healthcare workers throughout the country.
Big raises for 4,700 nurses and healthcare workers in Las Vegas.
Throughout all our work, we’re driven by a deep understanding of labor and a core belief that every worker deserves respect and dignity.
ARTS & CULTURE
The Hailstone team is full of highly creative people, so we value, respect and understand artists and arts organizations. From Brooklyn art shows, to concerts, to diverse cultural events, we have experience in highly successful planning, promotion, branding and more. We make sure to foreground each artist or organization’s unique voice and greatly elevate their profile with key audiences, patrons, social media platforms and industry press.
In one recent example, we were asked to promote a huge multicultural festival in Las Vegas, which was never able to get media coverage before. We achieved a flood of positive press, including this story in Nevada's largest newspaper.
